  • Summary

    Crisp-chewy baked meringues meet cool, creamy coconut sorbet in these blushing beauties. The light-as-air disks, tinted the palest shade of pink, are made by swooping and swirling meringue on to parchment; the top layers are sprinkled with shredded coconut before baking. Freezing the desserts (for up to a day) leaves the cakes soft enough to eat with a fork -- or a spoon, as you like it -- on any day or midsummer's night.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 cups sugar
    • 6 large egg whites
    • Pinch of coarse salt
    • 1 drop red food coloring
    • 1/4 cup unsweetened finely shredded coconut
    • 3 pints coconut sorbet, slightly softened
